John also makes abstract/IDM/hip-hop under the name Telesys, and used to drum for countless indie-pop bands. John got his start with Casio keyboards after stealing an SK-1 from a girlfriends brother. Years later after joining an all Casio pop group called HARM, his love for Casio's grew into an obsession. He even organized an all SK-1 compilation and received many great tracks, but lack of funds forced him to scrap that project and focus on producing the soon to be world famous 8-bit Nintendo rap phenomenon known as 8-BITZ.
John is busy recording new Maps of the Neighborhood tracks as he types this bio. Actually, I think he is making an mp3 now. Look for a full length CD out sometime in March. Meanwhile, feast upon the free mp3's on this site.
Casio thugz keepin' in real.
